Stunning Love

“Stunning!”  That’s how a friend described the background of this card at my stamp camp on Tuesday.  And those stunning results are easily achieved with the Finial Press Textured Embossing folder .  The same embossing folder was used to create the Cherry Cobbler heart.    After punching it out the the textured cardstock with the large heart punchthe heart’s surface was run across a white craft pad to create the contrast.

The old style large heart punch AND scallop oval punch are currently on clearance while supplies last.  Click the clearance button on the far sidebar to see additional bargains!  And remember the SAB Outlined Occasions stamp set featured here is FREE with a qualifying order until March 31st.

The Love tag was created with the scallop oval punch and the extra large oval punch.  Love was punched with the scallop oval punch and then layered on top of the large oval punch.  Then I punched a scallop oval of Cherry Cobbler clipped it in half and adherred it under the tag hanging out on the ends with brads to decorate it.

The black gingham ribbon is no longer available but the 1/8″ black taffeta ribbon is a great alternative!

MDS verse

Here’s a My Digital Studio project I did this morning.  I started out with the Write Stuff II-8 1/2 x 11 scrapbook page template.  I rearranged the elements, added a couple of text boxes and that’s it. My finished project is a little less than a half sheet size and it took me minutes to create.  I will probably mount this on some Wild Wasabi and Early Espresso card stock to complete my sign.

Easy Card Sample on The NEW and IMPROVED

Welcome!  I’m so excited to introduce the new and improved website.  I’ve been working on this in the background for a few weeks and it’s exciting to see this coming together finally.  I look forward to being able to provide you with the best stamping and papercrafting information with this new format.  (Don’t want to miss a thing?  Sign up in the box on the right to receive updates. →→→ )

And here’s the simple, but elegant card I promised: The background of this card was created with the very versatile set Delicate Doilies.  The saying and the fun, little butterfly are from the Sale-a-bration set Elementary Elegance.  This set is only available until March 31st and is FREE with a $50 product purchase!

I placed the ribbon through the card and ‘around’ the words by placing small rectagular cuts in the white cardstock using an x-acto knife.   Of course, you could always stamp your saying on a separate piece and use a cool punch like the curly label punch  to step it up.

And here’s a close up of that fun butterfly to which I quickly added a little sparkle with the new Dazzling Details, punched it out with the 1/2″ circle punch and elevated it with a dimensional. Card recipe:
